Behind all her fame and achievements is Gina Guangco, her mother.
If you thought movie stars fall from the skies, think again. Although Gina is not as popular as her daughter, she has been a fundamental part of her daughter’s success, supporting her career all the way. But who is Gina Guangco? Much of her life is a mystery to the public, but we will be telling you all there is to know about her in a bit.
Early & Personal Life
Gina Guangco is an American Filipino citizen. Her exact date of birth or age is believed to be January 27, 1958, and she is assumed to be around 60 years old. She was born in Manila, Philippines, where she grew up before moving to the United States of America. She was married to a firefighter, Greg Hudgens. She met Greg after she arrived in the United States. They dated for a couple of months before getting married. The couple tied the knot at a private ceremony with close friends and family members in a local church. They lived happily in Los Angeles, California, and were blessed with two amazing children, Vanessa and Stella.
Gina stayed married to Greg until he died from stage 4 cancer on January 31, 2016. He died a few hours before Vanessa Hudgens’ performance in Grease: Live. Vanessa announced the death on her social media accounts and dedicated her performance to him. Gina Guangco also has a brother that lives in Mabahin, Cortes Surigao Del Sur, in the Philippines.
Vanessa Hudgens & Stella Hudgens
Gina Guangco’s daughters have been successful in their acting and singing careers. Vanessa Hudgens was born Vanessa Anne Hudgens on December 14, 1988. She is a very popular American actress and singer. After her debut in the feature film Thirteen (2013), she gained more mainstream success and fame when she portrayed the role of Gabriella Montez in the widely acclaimed High School Musical film series (2006-2008).

She has recorded numerous songs throughout her career, and her song Breaking Free has been her highest peak on the US Billboard Hot 100 at Number 4 and Number 9 in the UK. Vanessa released her debut studio album, V, on September 26, 2006. It was also a hit with the audience, debuting at Number 24 on the US Billboard 200 chart and selling 34,000 copies in the first week. The album was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in February 2007.
In several interviews, Vanessa has spoken highly of her mother and her supportive role in her life. In an interview, when she was speaking on what she cherishes from being raised by Gina, Vanessa said, “… And the amount of time and money that they put in, so much driving back and forth to auditions, to make our dreams come true.”
Gina’s second child, Stella Hudgens, was born as Stella Teodora Chanel Guangco Hudgens, on November 13, 1995, at Ocean Beach, California. She is an American actress, known for her roles in Players (2020), Powerless (2017), and Smoky Knights (2016).

Education and Career
In terms of education, there are no academic credentials or any information about her educational background available to the public yet. Also, details about her professional career are not known. However, she had successfully held office jobs in the past, but it’s hard to say in what sector she worked.
Although she grew up in a musical family and had a keen interest in music while she was growing up, she never pursued a professional career in music. Gina Guangco focused on raising her children properly and has been devoted to supporting and encouraging their success. It can be said that her family has been her life’s work.
Net Worth and Income
Gina has not disclosed her earnings or net worth. Both her daughters, Stella and Vanessa Hudgens, are actresses. According to several sources, Vanessa is said to have an estimated net worth of just over $14 million. We suppose that she is living comfortably based on her children’s careers and earnings. It is also a possibility that Gina is involved in some business or work, but we cannot verify that.
